Tim and Julie Rivenbark had a house, two kids and jobs they loved. But the Howard County couple also had a yearning for more experiences and fewer things. "We were doing what we thought was the American dream," says Tim Rivenbark. It took a couple of years for the sensible, responsible Rivenbarks to throw caution to the wind and make the decision to leave behind the familiar and embark on an adventurous yearlong quest to see the world. Over the past several weeks, the couple sold their house and cars.

Four years ago, Kara Pruett made an offhand comment about a guy who was standing outside a Fells Point bar on a busy Saturday night talking on his cell phone. "That is so '80s," Kara told a girlfriend walking with her, not thinking the guy on the phone would hear her. "I'm just trying to get a hold of my twin brother," Paul Ullmann answered in his defense. Kara was startled at being overheard, and also surprised, because she, too, was a twin. Later, when she and Paul, along with their friends, ended up at a bar called John Stevens, it seemed only natural that they sit down together and talk about their similar life experiences.

Needing to issue a wake-up call to her Loyola women's lacrosse team after last week's season-opening loss to Virginia, coach Jen Adams decided to ditch the theatrics in favor of a more civilized approach. "I didn't realize all you had to do was ask nicely," Adams said with a laugh. Whatever the method, the message apparently stuck, as No. 10 Loyola scored six of seven goals to open the second half, then held off a late surge by visiting No. 9 Penn State in a 13-11 win. Trailing by a goal at halftime, the Greyhounds (1-1)

Senior sweeper and co-captain Kara Passarelli has provided smooth and organized play in the back to help the No. 13 Vikings to a 9-1-1 mark this season. She is a three-year starter at sweeper and earned first-team All-County honors last fall. In her sophomore year, she picked up a lacrosse stick for the first time and made her way onto the varsity last season, playing defense for the Vikings to help them to their 10th straight state title and fifth straight unbeaten season. With a weighted 3.6 grade point average, she would like to study business and communication in college and would like to continue playing soccer.

April Darchicourt wanted to do something to celebrate the care her daughter received at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. "They did not treat us like an assembly line," she said, recalling that her daughter, Kara, would be 15 this year had she survived cerebral palsy. She died of a seizure in 1999. Each year, Darchicourt, an Edgemere-area homemaker who describes herself as a "domestic goddess," and her husband, Tom, who runs a home improvement business, organize hundreds of motorcyclists for a charity event that brings some excitement to the children being treated at Kennedy Krieger.

Kara Brosmer was looking for a school activity to get involved in when she entered Mount Hebron as a freshman. Despite never running before or playing many sports while growing up, she turned to cross country. Now, she is a senior leader for the Vikings. Brosmer said the discipline and dedication required for cross country have helped her in other areas, particularly in the classroom, where she maintains a B average. Along with cross country, Brosmer has been on the varsity outdoor track and field team the past two seasons, specializing in the two-mile event.

Arts and history buff Kara Mae Harris and college just didn't mix. But when the Prince George's County native dropped out of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2000, she didn't retreat to her parent's house in Beltsville. Instead, the feisty 18-year-old quickly moved to the city and got a full-time job. "I fled to Baltimore as soon as I got the chance," said Harris, now 22 and working as an administrative assistant for a downtown temp agency. For her, the old port town was more authentic and down-to-earth than stuffy Washington, a city where she'd whiled away many hapless teen-age nights.

We're fortunately past the culture wars of the 1980s and 1990s, when artworks became proxies for the political agendas of groups on both the right and the left. Yet there are plenty of reminders that much contemporary art still has a sting to it. When art touches on deeply held beliefs, especially those regarding such sensitive subjects as race or religion, sparks are likely to fly. What, then, is one to make of the relative tranquillity surrounding the work of Kara Walker, an African-American woman artist whose signature silhouette figures -- one of which was recently acquired by the Baltimore Museum of Art -- depict what appear to be almost lighthearted scenes of slavery and sexual perversion in the antebellum South?

Though they managed to avoid Hurricane Sandy, it has certainly been a busy two weeks in the fictional Hamptons. While the real Hamptons were taking a beating from the outside forces of nature (as did this blog, which had to take a hiatus as a result), "Revenge" Hamptons is becoming unraveled from the inside, as the characters continue to scheme against each other, and one may have finally connected the dots. Amazingly, Amanda and baby Carl survived the fall, with barely a scratch, and seem to be out of the hospital in record time.

I live in Nottingham, and last November I traveled to Italy. My husband and I are lucky enough each year to take a trip around our anniversary, just the two of us, and this time, we went to Italy. One of our favorite spots was the Cinque Terre, a collection of villages along the Italian coast. Unfortunately we were only there for one day, but in that time we hiked through four of the five towns. This photo shows the town of Manarola. We loved how all the houses were perched on the cliff.
